14 feet tunnel detected by BSF in Jammu
The Border Security Force (BSF) on Saturday unearthed a 14-foot-long tunnel, which was being dug from the Pakistani side along the International Border, and recovered a “war-like” store in Arnia sector here, officials said.
“An under-construction tunnel was found during sanitisation operation along the International Border between Vikram and Patel posts near Damana,” the officials said.
The tunnel was 14-foot long when it was detected by the alert troops, the officials said, adding “war-like” store was recovered during the search of the tunnel indicating the presence of armed infiltrators who, however, managed to flee back.
The officials said a special drive for the detection of tunnels was launched all along the international border in the wake of recent cross-border shelling by Pakistan which left a jawan and a woman dead and scores of civilians injured.
The tunnel was discovered a day after its field commanders and those of Pakistan Rangers held a flag meeting in which it was mutually agreed that peace and tranquility would be maintained on the International Border by both sides. (Agencies)
